Is anyone else getting calls from international numbers starting with 0079? I got a couple in the last week but didn’t have to answer but it’s a good thing I didn’t because Techie Dad posted earlier today that this is a spam number that may result in losing all credits for prepaid numbers and causing extra charges for post paid, as well as the possible infection in harmful viruses (via sms with hyperlinks) that cannot be repaired except with a complete format of the device.

I haven’t seen yet any announcements from telecom operators in Lebanon but the best thing to do is to ignore any calls that you wouldn’t otherwise be expecting from unfamiliar country codes and don’t ever call back the number.
